    New M&P 9 compact slide release question

    I just picked up my new 9mm S&W M&P compact today!
    Looks great, holds nice, love the sights... but I did notice one thing already - the slide release is VERY stiff - in fact I can't get it to drop and release the slide without pulling back on the slide a bit. Is this normal and will it smooth out or should I have the gun shop look at it? Thanks.

    I personally have had no issues with the slide release on either my M&P fullsize or compact, both in 9mm.

    Mine was pretty stiff when I first got it, but it has loosened with use.

    That said, I practice the slingshot method and don't really worry about actuating the slide stop by hand.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.
